“The paintings are all your own”
One of the exclusive installations at David Bowie is at the Brooklyn Museum, is a section dedicated to fan art contributions.
It’s really quite touching to think that over the years David collected all of the art he was sent and that it has been carefully stored ever since.
It had long been a wish of his to exhibit these works and the folks at the Brooklyn Museum have risen to the challenge.
We plan to post a piece online every week with the hashtag #DavidBowieArt with the aim of eventually creating an online gallery.
Sadly, the creators of the majority of the works are unidentifiable as the artworks were often accompanied by the artist’s signature only. Some pieces had more detail but it would be great if anybody seeing them could furnish us with more information, be it the artists themselves or somebody who knows them.
Anybody know anything about this beautiful first picture we are featuring?
Finally, apologies to each artist for the low quality reproduction. Much of the work was photographed through glass and sometimes intrusive reflections were unavoidable.
You can enjoy all of the pieces on display at the exhibition from March 2nd to July 15th. Tickets and more here.
